A: Poured a half finger white colored head that settled very quickly to a thin rim around the glass. Not much can been seen in terms of carbonation. Some lacing. Color is a clear autumn hay.

S: Light sweetness from citrus, essences of earthy grass. Yeast and wheat are the dominate scents.

T: What I would expect from a pale wheat ale. Great balance between the malt, crisp grain, delicate hints of citrus, lemon grass, and hops.

M: Great. Just the right amount of carbonation and stickiness.

O: Overall a little above average. I appreciate the gift all the way from WI. Thanks T!

I am sure I have had this beer before since it is local but I have never sat down to actually review it. Unfortunately for the low abv, this beer was way too much work to drink. What I mean by that is I don't even mind that it is pretty low in alcohol content but it wasn't really that easy drinking of a beer. The mouthfeel was slightly harsh and it felt like there was a bunch of stuff forced into the taste of this beer. Speaking of the taste there was definitely wheat present along with some fruit and light hops. Not a great drinking experience.
